IFSEC Connect – 1-30 June

Throughout June, IFSEC is inviting the security industry to attend an online marketplace and meetings event – IFSEC Connect. The platform will give attendees the opportunity to connect with new and international suppliers and peers through video calls and messaging. Powered by AI, the Connect 2021 platform supports visitors with intelligent meeting recommendations based on your online profile – or you can simply plan your own meeting schedule directly through the system – no external Zoom email invites will be required!

In addition, attendees will have exclusive access to a host of content from IFSEC and the co-located events. A series of tech-based presentations and thought leadership panel discussions focusing on the industry’s hottest topics include the future of video surveillance and CCTV, access control, intruder detection and protecting cities are scheduled to take place.

Speaking about IFSEC’s virtual presence, Group Director Chris Edwards said: “IFSEC International succeeded in bringing the industry together remotely during 2020 when it was simply impossible to meet face to face. This year, we’ll be building on that success and significantly raising the bar in terms of the content and connections we’ll be delivering for exhibitors and attendees online during IFSEC Connect 2021.”

IFSEC International 2022

Europe’s largest dedicated in-person security event – IFSEC International – will return to London’s ExCeL in May 2022.

In place of this year’s in-person event in London, which had been scheduled to run from 12-14 July, the IFSEC team will turn its full attention to IFSEC Connect, an immersive, AI-powered, online experience that gives attendees the opportunity to engage with new international suppliers and peers through an online marketplace and tailored meeting recommendations throughout June 2021.

Leading industry players including Dahua, HID Global, Motorola Solutions and Texecom will be available for appointments when the platform opens for meetings from June 1st.

This year’s IFSEC International had been scheduled to take place at London’s ExCeL from 12-14 July, however the team is now focused on preparations for the 2022 edition, with leading names such as Hikvision, Paxton Access and Anixter having already booked their space.

Chris Edwards, Group Director at Informa Markets, said: “We’ve worked tremendously hard along with our venue and contractor partners to deliver an event that is both safe and successful for all involved, but it’s become clear that with the ongoing international travel disruption and general uncertainty caused by the pandemic that transitioning to a vibrant online experience that the whole international security community can be part of is the right thing to do.

“Our virtual event, IFSEC Connect, will offer delegates and suppliers the chance to come together online and we look forward to delivering an in-person series of events at a scale our customers are used to seeing in 2022.”
